Versace is a name that is recognized globally. It is an exclusive designer line that is not going to be found at your local K-mart. In fact, many of Hollywoods elite are thrilled to debut an original design, yet what most do not know is that the design is only borrowed for the event. Much like the jewelry they wear on the Red Carpet, Versace in particular creates an original peice, and when one of Hollywoods elite wears it in public, that is essentially the catwalk for that piece.
Giovanni, or Gianni Versace, began his design company with the goal that he was going to produce the most high end, and trend setting fashions that the world has ever seen. His stamp of fashion has been seen from the authentically beautiful, to the bizarre. His philosophy was that no woman should ever feel like she looks like someone else, and that she is exhibiting absolute originality. After his brutal death in 1997, his sister, Donatella has since run the design functions of his the brand Versace, and has continued to turn head with breathtaking new designs. She has even made the clothing line more accessible by completing partnerships with stores such as Neiman Marcus.
The brand Versace encompasses a no bones philosophy, and can cater directly to client needs. Donatella has made the company feel more approachable, as she has incorporated an artistic, yet realistic feel to her advertising, that is simply a complimentary addition to the fine pieces that are produced. Coupled with beautiful fabrics, and brilliant design ideas, Versace continues to be one the worlds leading design houses that is responsible for clothing not just movie stars, by royals, and some of the world wealthiest elite. Do not let this part stop you though from aspiring to own your own piece of Versace.
